Opposition at Queen's Park are seething after a report in the Globe and Mail shows millions of dollars in taxpayer money went to top up payments to key political advisors to the Liberals under former premier Dalton McGuinty.

Because of a transparency loophole the Liberal Caucus office, didn't have to publicly report it.

Tim Hudak says this revelation makes it clear how your money is really being spent

The Progressive Conservative leader says he wants the current premier to be open about this, calling fro Kathleen Wynne to explain this.

Tory MPP Lisa MacLeod says been calling for reform when it comes to caucus office expenses for four years. However, she says even if that happens, it's clear the Liberals don't like to follow the rules.

MacLeod says there needs to be a broad conversation about this.

NDP House Leader Gilles Bisson says he's a little shocked that are paying people who are professional lobbyists.

Bisson says he sent a letter to the province's integrity commissioner earlier this week, to make sure the rules are clear and everyone follows them.

The Premier's office says all three party caucus offices have the same rules, underlining funding is for research, communication, and administrative services.
